Spring Moods is a punk band from Forli, Italy. In october of 2017 they released their album titled “Sad Love Story.” The album is full of fast, loud, and catchy punk rock songs from beginning to end. In old school punk rock fashion the songs are all short and straight to the point. The longest song on the album is the closing song “Super High” which runs 2:09.
After listening to this album a handful of times over the last week the one thing that stands out is a small bit of confusion in the translation into English. It is noticeable in a couple songs, but all in all it was done well enough to get the idea of what the song is saying. Once you get past that one aspect, the band is very tight as far as the music side. The vocals are very fitting as far as meshing well with the instruments. The lyrics tell the struggles of a love gone wrong.
There were a few songs on the album stuck out to me over the rest. One of those songs being track #3 “The Last Beer,” which is a song about drinking away the hurt. I love the opening line “It’s always the last beer,” how true that is. Then comes track #5, “Star Wars Love Story.” This is a song about not being able to be with someone who has never seen Star Wars. The whole idea of the song reminds me of a song by The Hextalls called “Ramones T-shirt.”
Track #6 is one that I think anyone who has ever had a horrible relationship/breakup can relate to, titled “Good Morning Vietnam- Episode III.” Made me laugh a bit when in the middle of the song a clip from a speech by President Trump appeared. Do you think the Italian punk rockers are making fun of our president? Join the club I guess. No complaints from this side.
All in all I thought that Spring Moods put out a well recorded and fun album that a punk rock fan will enjoy. It is worth a listen at least, and form your own opinion. Show some love and grab a copy of “Sad Love Story” by Spring Moods and keep your ears open for more from this band. I think it is safe to say their will be more on the horizon.
